Stay tuned for upcoming events…

Hi Everyone,

Thanks to everyone who was able to come out to our BBQ this past Thursday! I think we can all agree that it was quite tasty… Just to give everyone an update, we have not set the date for our next meeting though it should be sometime towards the end of September (so either next week 9/21-25 or the week after).

In the meantime, we are trying to secure dates and locations for the following events:

1) Yoga to the People (on Shattuck Ave);
2) Simply Raw: a campus-wide viewing of a documentary on eating raw foods and the effects that it’s had on people with diabetes, and
3) a Tea Tasting session.

Update on Fall Integrative Medicine Conference:

We are in the process of securing date and rooms for this event which we hope to hold on Saturday, November 14th. If anyone is interested in helping us plan for the FIMC and has not already signed up for a committee, please feel free to contact the respective Head of Committee member so that we have your email on file. You can find our contact information if you click on the “2” at the bottom of the “Fall Integrative Medicine Conference” tab at the top of the page.

That’s all for now. Good job if you made it this far on the post!

Violence and (Self)-Killing Passion: Lethal Biopolitics or a New Formation of Self
Lecture | April 28 | 5-6:30 p.m. | Barrows Hall, 608, Gender and Women’s Studies Conference room

Speakers/Performers: Kazuko Takemura, Speaker, Gender and Women’s Studies; Trinh T. Minh-ha, Introduction, Gender and Women’s Studies

Sponsor: Gender and Women’s Studies, Department of

The development of the feminist movement and feminist and gender studies during the past several decades, as well as the recent global economy and the rapid advancement of science and technology, has been instrumental in transforming the modern sexual regime. Paradoxically, however, violence which was before deployed based upon asymmetrical power configurations is now extending across previously existing boundaries. Modern biopolitics is flinging off any pretense of bio-ness and seems to be transforming itself into a “lethal machine.” Referring to injuries and murders committed in Japan, this talk examines a sort of affinity between recent re-definitions of the human/inhuman or the concept of connectedness and what could be called the (self)-killing passion observed specifically in the behavior of younger generations in Japan.

Lecture | April 29 | 4:10-5 p.m. | 114 Morgan Hall

Sponsor: Nutritional Sciences and Toxicology

Workshop Clarifications

Hi Everyone,

–> Just to clarify, you can watch a Maximum of TWO DIFFERENT docuementaries to count towards your workshop requirements. We would prefer that students be more proactive in experiencing integrative medicine first hand, which is why we want at least two workshops to be more “hands-on”.

For the links that we sent out for watching  “Unnatural Causes” online, the seven links are parts of the same documentary and you need to watch at least one hour’s worth of links. They will only count as one documentary.

–> We have not been able to get a room for showing “The Business of Being Born” again so if you want to use that as a workshop requirement, please go to the MRC (downstairs Moffit Lib) and watch it there. You can also search the MRC’s website for documentaries related to alternative medicine/complimentary medicine/integrative medicine. and watch one of those for your workshop requirement.

–> We are considering having a late night facilitated discussion next week (probably 8:30PM-10PM). Please email or comment on this post if you are interested in having this option. (It would most likely be next Thursday, May 1st, location: TBD)
